Why you'll love Plus 5 South Wharf

  • Mesmerizing riverside City Views.
  • Classic, Premium & Deluxe Packages Available.
  • Easy convenience for your guests to Melbourne’s fantastic free tram zone.

Plus 5 South Wharf is a cocktail and tapas bar, set alongside spectacular views of the Yarra and Melbourne’s city skyline. It also makes a historic cargo hall its home, one built in Melbourne’s salad days, way back when in 1884.A mix of old and new, Plus 5 retains the bones of its setting’s former life, with high ceilings, exposed beams, and a large ‘5’ across one wall (albeit in stylish tiling rather than sea-ravaged wood). The space itself is modern, sophisticated, sleek - quintessentially Melbourne.And the drinks? Again, a mix of old and new, with classic cocktails sitting alongside a slew of modern concoctions. A great spot for birthday drinks, an office get together, or a Christmas party.Plus 5 is found along South Wharf’s Promenade, a stroll away from Spencer Street, and the city beyond. Southern Cross station is the nearest spot for trains, although it’s a pleasant walk down the Yarra from Flinders Street.

Great pizza, amazing cocktails, super friendly staff. Confusing decor 🤨 what’s with the cushions? For a riverside bar I wish the styling was more thought through so I could post pics on insta! Still a great place to hang out though.

Good lunch promo of a small pizza and beer! The hot pizza was perfectly hot and melty for a cold day. Nice views and a good spot for lunch before or after shopping at DFO

Nice cocktails, everything is a little dirty though and not much care factor about how the place looks - a bit outdated and scrappy. Staff are nice enough.
